A committee from the National Associa

guicral committee with a petition urging
the continuance of a postolllco department
order , which provides that no carrier shall
bn discharged from the seivlco until he
shall have had an opportunity for defense ,
also that for promotions do the olllce of
Mipciliitciiilent of carriers carriers alone
shall be eligible , also that If It Is Intended
to establish an Inspector force for the
supervision of the letter carriers that snld
Inspectors shall servo at least live jears
In the classified service. The petition was
lefcrrcd to the committee on resolutions.
President Pioctor of the civil service
commission nddrcnsed the delegates on the
Viorklnga of the civil service law. At the
afternoon session a number of papers were
MM. Charlra Ilusacll Lowell of New York
spoke on "Tho Relation of Women to the
Reform of the Civil Service" Mra. Lowell
aft out with the statement that as New York
had the unhappy distinction of having oilgl-
nated the spoils Bjstcm , It was
that thellrat association for Its reform
should have been formed In that state. Thin
was In 1S77. The woman's auxiliary to tills
New York association was formed only a
> ear ago She declared that , however great
ma > be the cause for gratitude for the many
victories won by the caiwe , the war Is not
yet over , and the spoilsmen , driven to bay ,
arc , in Now Yoik nt least , preparing for a
determined attack upon the very life of the
leform. Mrs. Lowell urged that the objec
tion to the separate existence of women's
auxlliatlcs wart not well known because
more Intr-icst could bo aroused by having
more than one organization She argued
however , that the women of other states
should reduce the membership fee fiom $5
to $2 or $1. In oilier to secure a largo mem
Dornian n Eaton spoke on "Civil iScrvlco
Commission Essential to tlu Civil Service
Reform. ' Mr. Eaton began his address with
the statement that the enemies of civil scrv-
Ice rofoim in the Mate of Now York arc pre
paring for a combined assault upon that s > e-
lem at the nt\t session of tlio legislature
and that If It should prevail , disaster would
usulL to the reform policy of the state. The
dliect object of the assault Is to deprive the
state commission of essential power over
the evamli.atlonj , , he t > ald , and If possible
to supersede the commission altogether Mr
Eaton continued "The most difficult cases to
deal with liavo been where aa for example
In Haltlniore the local officers and the local
patty managers out of olficc , have been side
by bMo In seciet to-operntlon with each
othe" . Iheicforc. to hand over to either
of them the control of the examinations
would bo the merest stuptdltv " The speaker
concluded as follows : "If Mr. Morton couhl
be governor for two jcars more the struggle
of the spoilsmen for supremacy would -be
made hopeless and the abiding triumph of
reform would bo achieved. Much good de
pends upon whether Mr.'Black , the new
governor of New York , shall decide to lead
the higher or the lower forces of hl party ;
whether he Khali takp patronage mongcring
Governor Hill for his model and court his
shameless nnd Ignominious fate and that of
his parl.v or shall rbe to the level of Presi
dent Cleveland and President Harrison , of
Govu > ior Morton nnd of all the governors
of Massachusetts , the latter of whom vetoed
eveiv bill which thieatened reform In their
state "
Francis E. Lcupp of Washington spoke on
"L" . the Poor Spoilsman ; Hlo Da > b Num
bered In the Indian Service. " Mr. Leupp
nt the outset told the story of the emergence
of the Indlin service from "spollo barbar-
IMII. " adding that the competitive tojt 'or

eJly so Intrenched that no futnro administra
tion will dare attempt to dislodge It. "Hut , "
ho uddcd , "In the Indian service , aa elsewhere
whore , the steady reduction of the spalls-
man's privilege has the effect of concentrat
ing lila greed for what remains. For a rem
edy fcr this trouble wo ahall probably have
to await two changes a reform In the
method of choosing the higher officers nnd
the moro general settlement of the western
country. "
Lucius B. Swift cf Indianapolis spoke on
"Four Years' Tenure" Mr. Swift opened
with a recital of the achievements of the
merit cistern In the federal cervlce during
the past thirty jearo under the leadership
of this league. Ho wld that ono reault alone
was the transfer from the field of politic : ? to
the field of the wagfenrnor of about 100-
OW fif the host places In. that service "Tho
final establishment of the merit system , "
suld ho , "had left much of the federal servIce -
Ice In a curious condition , meet of the under-
emplo > es of high efficiency and long experi
ence , whllo the heads have I CM because they
weio generally appointed within four ycairi
and were almost universally without knowl
edge of Oielr duties. This Is beciuse there
Is alwaja a place to reward real er alleged
service In carrjlng the election. " He said
In conclusion "Mr. MeKlnley Is not free
In the matter. He Is so bound by his plit-
fcrm as to leave hli' sincerity to bo nucy-
tloned. He must take up the work where
his predecessor left It and go forward to the
mul. To urge that four-year commission ! ) or
four-year customs stand In the way would
bo hut childish excuse * . The first principle
to be laid down hy President MeKlnley | i >
that there are no ollloeu to bo divided a.
spoils The second principle Is the same
and the lat't Is llko unto It. "
"Civil Service Reform In the West" was
the subject taken by John Ela of Chicago.
The speaker said civil service reform was
gradually icmodellnB ptlmltlve political
machinery and Intioduclng business meth
ods In the government throughout the mid-
illii west. The action of the Illinois legis
lature In pasclni ; the civil service bill a
jcar ago last spring was by no means ns
spasmodic as It seemed to the gentlemen of
the cast. One of the most notable effects
of the civil service law was that the of
fices In the city hall were no longer crowded
with politicians after places for themselves
or friends and so all the officers , from the
major down , were allowed to devote them
selves to the Interests of the city ; whereas ,
foimerly a very considerable portion of
their tlmo was absorbed In parceling out
the plunder "I Irtiovv > ou will permit mete
to say without Implying nny discourtesy
whatever that the atmosphere of the west
seems moro congenial to the growth of civil
service reform than that of the cast. In
the west the growth of the reform In all
Its aspects seems to bo rapid and continuous ,
end jet healthy , and It Is already cropping
out In practical legislation In many of the
Btalc.t. In Chicago we shall got the entire
city service under the rules within five
yours after the passage of the law oven If
wo have to change the political complexion
of an ndmlnlstiatlon sometimes on put pose
to do It "
There wan a heated discussion this after
noon over ono plank In the resolutions
when they were offered by Chairman nont-
pirto. The plank which caused the trouble
was as follows :
The Ignominious nnd well merited defeat
of lh Uomocratlo party ut the polls nt the
let-out election IH n nourco of gratification ,
Thcro were half a ilrucn delegates on tholr
( cu Hcnimbllng for recognition before the
lr.s < word waa out of the speaker's mouth ,
Colonel Ela of Chicago asked that the para
graph be stricken out , as he know Buvonvl
person * who voted for William J. Ilryan
for president who were In hearty accord
with civil service reform. N. H. Davis of
Cincinnati also opposed the objectionable
plank The resolutions were finally referred
back to the committee , nnd when they came
before the convention again the obnoxious
paragraph had been stricken out. The reao-
Unions adopted are as follows :
1. The National Civil Service Reform

mini meeting. Is compelled to notice the
fnrt thnt ( luring the > past year , for the

cordially endorses Hie prote-st published

7. At Its last annual meeting the league
lie.inl with pleasure of the commendable
attempt of the postmaster to ex
tend the bemllts of the classified service
to many postmasteis of smaller postolllces
by consolidating their offices with those of
the larger cities In the vicinity. This meas
ure held out the promise of a consldi'nhlo
saving of public money and a marked in-
cion o in mail facilities , beside applying the
meilt system to a portion of the public
"ervleo whoieln Its Introduction Is at once
most desirable and attended with serlnus
difficulties. The league has slnre seen with
regret and Indignation the practle-al frus
tration of this judicious me-asure through
the selfish and unscrupulous hostility of
certain senators and ri pre entatives. a hos
tility clothed under v ulous frivolous lire-
texts , but which could be Inspired only by
a desire to use the public patronage as
rewards for peisonal adherents or pirty
woikers. and It uiges upon congress that
this eminently it-form bo no longer
delaj ed.
The session closed tonight with a banquet
at the Hotel Walton , tendered to the national
association by the Philadelphia branch.
There was a number of distinguished men
present , prominent among whom were- Sec
retary of Agriculture Morton , Carl Schurz ,

Aikcn and Henry Villard Letters of regret
were received from Postmaster Ocneral Wil
son and others. Herbert Welsh , president of
the local branch , presided , and , after nn
elaborate menu had been discussed Intro
duced Secretary Morton. The secretary re
ferred to President Cleveland n.s a "atroag
civil service reformer , " and spoke of the In
creased efficiency of his subordinates in the
Agricultural department as a result of the
classification of the service Mayor Strong
told of the successful operation of New
York's municipal civil service regulations.
Colonel John R. Proctor of Kentucky , chair
man of the National Civil Service commis
sion , spoke briefly of the work of the com
mission. He told of OHO government official
who , under the old svstcm of selection , had
been appointed to olllco upon the very high
est recommendations , but who was dis
missed for drunkon-ieas after a short incum
bency. Suhsceiuent Inquiry proved that In

NEW YOltK , Dec. U. Teddy Halo still
lends the slx-diy race , but Is not to far
ahead but ho may yet be passed. One change
wan made In the positions of the riders to

second In the race for three days. Foiatcr
gained otcadlly on Hlco , but dually fell hick
and had to t < co his cxertlcna go for naught

Ing. Should cither of the three leidera let

When Hale , the Jilsh rider , completed his
100th hour he had exactly 1-tOO miles to his
credit. That waa about 4 o'clock tins morn-

were four hours later In making the same
number of miles. "
All the riders except Hale were out at
9 o'clock. The Irlsnman waa then 140 miles
ahead of the record , and the other flrflt
eight were also bejond It. Forster rode
very erratically during the morning. At 2
o'clock he tan Into Schock and both tumbled
but remounted rjulclcly and rcaumed the

with Hlce , and Mndelox , who was a few feet
behind , sprawled over both of them Fora-
ter was then wained to ride more carefully
and his trainer gave him some stimulants ,
but ho was stilt wobbly , and rode at acry
slow gait for several hours.
Most of the rldcra were on the track dur
ing the latter hours of the morning. Hlce
dismounted shortly before 11 o'clock. Ho
was looking poorly. Taylor was less cheerful
as the morning wore on nnd even Hale had
recourse to a sponge. MeLcod seemed In
hotter spirits after ho had passed Click.
Schock was riding smoothly and Forster was
again In second place at 11 o'clock , having
passed Rice v.hllo the latter was resting.
Hlce was so weak about 1 p. m. that he
fell off his wheel , but ho plucklly remounted
and rode around fast again. Halo turned Infer

more than four < and a half hours. It Is

have been Hole's principal rival.
The rcconJrbreahlng scores of the riders
and the Interest [ naturally attaching to the
last hours of U 9 trace served to bring out
on unusually ; largo crowd early tonight. At
one mlnute1jinst S It was announced that
Hale had , 1,600 4 miles. Prolonged
cheers greeted the announcement , nnd a
largo basket of Honors was handed to the
Irishman , which ho carried around for a
few laps. The former record for six days
made by Schock was only l.GOO miles. AH

In a little while he was able to mount his
wheel again. At S.50 Ashlnger and Maddox
started a lively spurt. In five minutes Hale ,

As a result of a secret meeting held In the
mayor's olllco vesterdav afternoon thp water
woiks" ordinance * " did not come up in cno
adjourned council meeting last night. Most
of the coiincllmcii were present In the after
noon , together with City Attorney Council ,
Superintendent Hunt of the water company ,
and their attorney , R. S. Hall. The ordi
nance was discussed nt some length , but the
majority of the council were studiously si
lent. Henawa made a vigorous demand for
home concessions from the water company
commensniato with the advantages that It
would derive under the proposed ordinance.
The witor works people Intimated that they
were willing to make some concessions , but
did not specify what they would be. The
subject was finally dropped with nn under
standing thnt the ordinance should not bo
passed last night , and that another meeting
would be called In the mayor's olllco Mon-
ilay afternoon.
At the council meeting the protest of the
Commercial club against the proposed ordi
nance was lead. To offset this the water
company had a huge etoek of petitions
signed by propeity owners requesting the
council to pass the ordinance. The peti
tions had been worded to convey the Im-
IMei-sIim that the paswngo of the ordinance
meant unlimited employment for labeling
men nnd most of the signatures were these
of working men who had evidently been
"mpict-scd with that feature.
The Doaid of Public Woiks again called
attention to the fact that the Capitol avcnuo
sewer was entirely Inadequate to the de-
nands on It nnd the , communication was rc-
'eneil to the committee on soweiagc.
The rcjiort of C J. Anderson , superintend
ent of markets , for the piMbon of osvcn
months ending December 1 was submitted
nnd Indicated tint the enterprise had been \
: i financial succei' The total receipts wcr-1-
$2.112 BG. of which JUS 30 was from pre-
iiilumu and ? 1,7119.23 from rentals. The di -
iMirsemonts were $515.75 , leaving n bilanco
of $1,59080 In the treasury. The suierln-
[ emlcnt recommended that ne.\t joar about
123 stnllsbo provided with Iron frames cirry-
ng a covering of ducking or mine similar
nntcrlnl that would kc-ep off the rain. Thu
report was placed on file and the comptroller - "
was directed to transfer the balance to the %
general fund.
Another coal dealers' ordinance was Intro-
iluced and laid over. It provides for aa
annual llucnra fco of $20.
The November bills of the electric light
company , the Acme Street .Lighting company
and the Omaha Gns Manufacturing company
were approved and ordered pJhl aa soon aa
funds are available.
\ new peddlers' ordinance was passed ,
tvhlch IH designed to protect local gnidenora
rom the competition of outfldo men It re-
inlres all pe ddlers and fruit venders to pay
a license unles.i they nuke affidavit that they
raise the produce themselves.
The ordinance which provides for the Issu
ance of $31C,900 In renewal bonds to tnko
up the short time bands that mature during
897 was favorably reported nnd pa ed.
The council then wont Into committee of
he whole to dlsciiDj Kmcnt'B house moving
ordinance , which has been on the files since
Match. The result was n reference to the
committee on public property and buildings.

uncc in
man surprises tin
watchers by sitting
up in his coflin ,
nnel asking why in
tile w oriel they put
him in there. Sucli
things , when they
happen , nre published far anel wide. They
nre considered well nigh miraculous. Is ft . '
any less wonderful when a man is cured of /
n disease prcMtmcd to be fatal ? When phy-
Ricians bay to a man that he cannot live , he
considers himself just about asgooel ns dead ,
lie can almost feel the coflin closing upon
him. And yet , frequently these men who
arc sentenced to death by their doctors , nre
raiscel up out of their sickness to perfect ,
hearty health.
Dr. I'ierce'sOolden Meelical Discovery lias
lifted thousands of men and women right out
of the grave. After doctors had given them
up , they have in desperation turned to this
great remedy , nnd to their great astonish
ment have found themselves Retting well.
Skepticism in regard to this wonderful
medicine has cheated many a man out of
his health. If people could only be made
